I did some more research after my post. The Christina was Christina
Carlsdotter, daughter of Carl Johan Jönsson and Bengta Månsdotter. Bengta
went on to marry Per Andersson, and when she died Per married Hanna
Tufvesdotter. Looks like Christina was a sole survivor of previous marriages
and effectively an orphan, taken in by Per and Hanna.
I'm glad you took a look at the register. I had no idea what page 554 was
all about. It occurred to me than Per had been to the USA in 1882, and had
possibly returned for his family. But maybe he never returned. Instead, he
bought their tickets and sent for them to join him. Maybe!
I've been able to find Tilda and Sigri in the 1900 Census. Tilda Anderson,
as she was in the USA, married Oluf Colman Dahl, a Norwegian, in Feb 1889.
They had 8 children, and there is quite a bit about the family online.
This is all I need on this family, thanks so much. Hanna was the
granddaughter of Nils Jönsson Lind, and thus the niece of my Nils Olsson who
went to Denmark. I extended my ArkivDigital subscription for a month to try
and find out what happened to all of Nils Lind's 5 children. Whilst I would
like to have found his father's (Jöns) birth and marriage this time around,
I will wait for time to pass.
I will shortly join the Denmark List and see what help I can find there. But
given that no Swedish record of Nils Olsson mentions a parish in Norway, I
think I'm most unlikely to find anything. My hope is that transcription of
the 1870 Denmark Census will be completed before my great aunt passes. My
only other option is to work my way parish by parish through Danish records
(online and free thankfully) to see if I get lucky, starting with parishes
closest to where Nils crossed into Denmark. And I can't be sure it was
Once again, thanks so much for the extensive help you've given to me this

moving-out date 1883-04-30 to N.America, but that might just be when he was
officially removed from the books.
